The WaterMelon wars have begun again.
& We B's are SOoo happy !
Prices have come down to a place we can now enjoy these delectables more often.
Between the new Walmart & Safeway... and our favorite local store Basha's;
we can usually find
Before the prices started dropping for the season i had asked one of the Produce men
if he knew when the "Watermelon wars" would start up again...
he leveled a perturbed glare at me... >://
"Just HOW do you think these stores can survive AND pay their employees if they keep cutting prices on every thing??"
i was low on snappy come backs so i just slunk off feeling like a whupped puppy but wished i had remembered to quote that old saying "a fast nickle will beat a slow dime anytime"... or something to that effect. i can't remember the exact quote..
but i DO understand this gentle-mans point... peoples need their incomes ..
It's getting to be the time of year when things slow down where Hub.B. works now ... and they offer people the chance to go home early... Soooo.... we Bee Savin' our nickles & dimes furr sure...
By the way.... When we first came here...money was really tight.... we did allot of belt tightening so to speak...
but Some Dear, Lovely person decided to help us and paid several months of our gas bill ...Anonymously.
Rumor has it that this person or persons has done this before for other families who were going through similar transitions as we did when we moved here.
The Lord really has blessed us BIGGY time here... and there.... Wherever he moves us though it's been difficult and not always as secure as we wanted... He always sprinkles big and little blessings amongst the trials. Sometimes we find ourselves giggling at ourselves for feeling so insecure, 'cause
He'll pop something into our day that would otherwise seem so random.
but ... it's not random at all.
Nothing God does for us is Random...
even the uncomfortable situations are very much a small tile in that very large mosaic that he is artfully placing our story within.
kind of like a juicy slice within a ripe watermelon
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit"
